Fire pits are welcome additions to your home that can add value as they are attractive pieces of workable art that can help your home stand out. Permanent fire pits are usually made of stone, clay or fire-resistant brick and can costs up to $3,000 depending on the model and type of stone.
These fire pits tend to be more elaborate but smaller, portable fire pits are a bit more versatile and come in different styles and designs. Portable fire pits can be carried to different places and are perfect for camping bonfires at the beach or tailgating for the big game.
